On Friday, Amendment 122135 was filed as part of Senate Bill 234, which addressed State v. James, 298 So. 3d 90 (Fla. 2d DCA 2020) (the case that said someone who has not paid their fee has no requirement to register), but removed the parts of the bill that state, “A day includes any part of a calendar day.”

If the language that concerned us the most (having to register places where we were present for only parts of a day), is gone, this is great news!

I would like to think that all of our efforts in bringing this concern to the legislators caused them to rethink the “a day includes any part of a calendar day” change. We will keep everyone updated.
